Pontiac Fiero 1984-1988 Repair Guide

Rear End Alignment


The Do-it-Yourself mechanic should not attempt to perform any wheel alignment procedures. Expensive alignment tools are needed and would not be cost efficient to purchase these tools. The wheel alignment should be performed by a certified alignment technician using the proper alignment tools.

Rear alignment refers to the angular relationship between the rear wheels, the rear suspension attaching parts and the ground. Camber and toe are the only adjustments required.


Camber can be adjusted by loosening both strut to knuckle bolts enough to allow movement between the strut and knuckle and grasping the top of the tire and moving it inboard or outboard until the correct camber is obtained.


Toe-in is adjusted by loosening the jam nuts on the toe link rods (fixed adjusting rods) then rotating the toe link rods to adjust the toe to specifications. Torque the clamp bolts to 47 ft. lbs. (64 Nm).
